historic photos colorized 1 2

Up until the 1970s, color photography was extremely rare, and so when we think about history prior to that time, we often envision it in black and white. Today’s technology now enables us to “colorize” historical photos, giving us our only chance at seeing what the world really looked like back then. And it was truly spectacular.Take a trip back in time through these photos below. It’s quite incredible to see Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein in living color.Seeing these photos in color for the first time makes it easy to imagine we could all have been part of a world that we've never even seen. It literally changes our perspective of history.

  Livingston BW with Camera

Barbara D. Livingston is one of America's most respected horseracing photographers, having photographed the sport she loves for more than 35 years. Livingston was just ten when, in 1971, she first aimed a camera toward the Thoroughbred world. Two years later, she photographed greatness as Secretariat whisked past in a Saratoga workout. By the next year, when she watched Ruffian dominate the 1974 Spinaway, she had decided upon her goal: to record racing history. Ruffian's Spinaway remains the most exciting race Livingston has ever seen. In a sport of raw speed where champions are determined by milliseconds, it's Barbara Livingston's job to freeze time.

Back in the day, years before the invention of color film, it was a common practice to hand tint photos in an attempt to create more realistic images.  Colorization of both still and motion pictures has been around for a long time. Early movies were often hand painted frame by frame to produce colorful artistic effects.
